Second round of road closures begins for Lincoln Transport Hub

A second round road closures have been enforced in Lincoln city centre for around 18 months as work progresses on the Lincoln Transport Hub.

Norman Street and Oxford Street were closed to traffic on the morning of Monday, September 12, with commuters across the city facing significant delays.

This is in addition to the closure of the Pelham Street underpass, as well as four central car parks.

Roads are not expected to reopen again until around September 2018.

The diversion route will take people driving either north or southbound on Broadgate onto the East West Link Road, to the Ropewalk, over University Bridge, onto Newland and into Wigford Way.

Drivers will also need to be aware of the closure of High Street between Tentercroft Street and St Mary’s Street, and the northbound one-way system on Brayford Wharf East.

A temporary bus station is being run from Tentercroft Street, with passengers giving mixed feedback during the first week of service, many of whom said the location was hard to find and new timetables were “confusing”.

The Lincoln Transport Hub is a £30 million scheme to demolish the city’s existing bus station and build a new state-of-the-art facility.

It will also involve a new 1,000 space multi-storey car park and facility improvements at the Lincoln Central Train Station.
